Carmen Jenner and Lauren K. McKellar treats readers to four and half cups of sugary sweetness!!! There was nothing Bittersweet about their latest release as this book was fun, sweet, adorable, sexy, and playful. It is the kind of read that will warm your hearts as it wasn’t an over the top drama kind of romance.

Bittersweet was such a pleasure to read,it's sweet, cute, funny and I've said sweet??
Romy is a wedding blogger and Elio is her favorite barista,they seem perfect for each other but their insecurities and their previous bad love experiences put a brake on their growing attraction.
I've really enjoyed these characters journey and I couldn't help but to cheer for them from start to end.
I hope to read more from this author duo because I need the story of two certain supporting characters.
ARC kindly received in exchange for an honest review.
This book was a fast and enjoyable read. I liked both main characters, but I wanted to smack their heads together so that they would speak to each other and communicate clearly.
I pretty much liked all the characters apart from one, and you'll know who that is when you read it yourself, trust me.
There were a lot of sweet and a lot of funny moments, and some moments you just wanted to smack someone on the head. Everything played ou ...more
Two of my favourite Aussie authors have come together to write Bittersweet.
And what a delightfully sweet story it is.
Romy and Elio's story is all kinds of cute and adorable, and right from the get go I wanted Romy to get her
I love how adorkably cute they are around each other. Watching them circle each other, neither admitting they want the other. You just want to smoosh them together.
There is a little darling of a scene stealer that will absolutely grab y ...more

Romy Love was hilarious, her mind set in the beginning of the book gave me more than a few laughs to the point I loved being in her head. Elio is cautious, and his reasons warrant that, but he knows what he wants and though he takes a slow approach with Romy it all made sense to me.
Though Bitterswee ...more
However, miscommunication and stupid (stupid, STUPID!) decisions took too much space and I was left wishing there was something more, maybe a longer epilogue.

This is a comedic, cute, and fun romance story.
There's so many sugary sweet scenes in this book. Romy and Elio do this dance, this push and pull with one another, and it's so obvious (to everyone but them it seems) that they feel something for one another.
I laughed throughout most of this story. The banter between characters is well-written and made the relationships even more relatable.
There were a few parts where I was on the edge of m ...more
Wedding blogger and a coffee God, yep, I was sold!
I really enjoyed this book. The characters are lovable, fun and easy to connect with (though they do require a good slappin' from time to time lol). If you enjoy your stories with lots of sweetness and angst, then I highly recommend grabbing book!
These two authors have done a wonderful job together, I know I'll be looking out for more of their stories. ...more
Bittersweet was a fun and sweet story about Romy, a wedding blogger and Elio the sexy barista owns the bakery in her building. Love and dating can be difficult at the best of times, but it’s even worse after you’ve been burned and lack the confidence to start something with someone new. What if you put yourself out there, and it turns out the other person isn’t interested, and more importantly if things got awkward where would Romy get her morning coffee and muffin fix from?
I loved the start of ...more

What an enjoyable read. Frustrating but enjoyable. I love these two characters but I seriously wanted to wack Elio and Romy and tell them to just speak to each other.
